Health Care Reform Update: Joint Letter to HHS from ACE, ACHA, and other Higher Ed Organizations

03/02/12. ACHA joins the American Council on Education (ACE) and five other higher education associations to urge the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to release the final regulations on Student Health Insurance Coverage under the Affordable Care Act or announce delayed implementation.

The proposed rules [pdf] were published on February 11, 2011, and HHS has yet to release the final regulations. The joint letter [pdf] emphasizes the challenges and impacts for campuses in both negotiating insurance contracts and preparing financial aid packages for the 2012-13 academic year.

ACHA will continue to keep you apprised as further developments ensue regarding the student health insurance regulations.
